Be content with what you have, for God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid." - Hebrews 13:5,6

It's amazing how Someone has the power to put things like this in our world for us to see. Or how He can make things happen if only you pray. Things like healing the wounded and protecting the weak are unfathomable to me. He is unfathomable to me; how He can still do so much for us, as we sit here and pitty ourselves in our self loathing ways.

If I could make things up in my head it would go something like this:
My family and friends would be happy way before me. I would go out of my way to be the person that they want me to be. They would soak up the enthusiasm and brilliance that God has set up around them, realize they are blessed, and live in the moment. But unfortunately that's not the way it goes. Reality goes a little something like this:
My family and friends are put behind me. Or that's what I feel like. Sometimes I would like to think of myself as one of the most giving people I know, but I could be so much better. I guess this isn't about how bad I am, it's about how much better I can, and hope, to be!
